Spinster

Noon Tunes

Sisters Rosalie, Rachel, and Amelia formed the trio, Spinster after unearthing their grandfather’s accordion in a closet and spending several summers learning pop covers on a hodgepodge of acquired instruments, from the mandolin to the washboard, glockenspiel, and upright bass. Spinster melds familial harmony and old-timey sensibilities with pop sounds, reviving classics of doo-wop, 80’s art pop, and 90’s boy band rock. Spinster is writing and recording their first album due to release next year. Spinster collaborated with Chattanooga based Summer Dregs to produce their first single for the album, Feet Are Dirty, a genre-bending mash up of nostalgic, organic sounds and danceable pop beats.

Stringer's Ridge

Noon Tunes

On a cold New Year’s Eve in 2017, three musicians met at John C. Campbell Folk School, became friends, started jamming together, and created a new trio, Stringer’s Ridge, a string band with varying and eclectic influences and a strong focus on mostly instrumental Celtic and Old Time music that could veer off into other genres at a moment’s notice.

A recent Chattanooga resident, fiddler Tom Morley has played professionally most of his life in many styles of music. Classically trained, he’s been a concert violinist, toured Europe with New Orleans jazz bands, and has a Gold Album representing his years on stage and in the studio with Country/New Traditionalist singer John Anderson. Tom’s passion for Irish Traditional Music over the past two decades led to the formation of bands that played across the country and inspired him to write a book on the subject. His wife, Fran Morley, picked up the bodhrán (the Irish drum) around the same time and has played alongside him in concerts and pub sessions in Ireland, England, Scotland, Holland, Canada, and throughout the Southeast US.

Guitarist Bryant Haynes has been painting harmonic tapestries and helping to keep the beat for a long time. A physics and chemistry teacher by day at GPS (where he’s been for two decades), he pounds out a strong, steady rhythm, both with guitar and his feet. He’s known to sing a bit, and if you’re in the audience, you may find yourself singing along, too.

9th Street Stompers

Noon Tunes

The 9th Street Stompers are an outfit of well-dressed no-counts chopping on acoustic instruments and singing about life, death, love, and liquor. Hailing from Chattanooga, Tennessee, they cull up the musical scenery of an era when the lines between swing, gypsy jazz, blues, rockabilly, and tango weren’t nearly as hard and fast as the drinking and dancing. Steering clear of much of the novelty and kitsch associated with pre-war music, they choose to demonstrate the modern relevance of their chosen medium.

Over Easy

Noon Tunes

Suspended somewhere over The Tennessee River is the sound of a band tearing apart and rearranging their countless influences, the sound of reinvention and adaptation that follows in the wake of a steady progressive rock heartbeat. And Chattanooga, TN outfit Over Easy is the source of that dense and complicated noise, a band that favors experimentation and the clatter of an especially good guitar riff thrown against a studio wall.

Their gift for technical proficiency runs parallel to a particularly determined line of rock inspiration, one that allows the band, built around the combined abilities of singer-guitarist Adam Stone, singer-guitarist Caleb Saunders, bassist Chris Witt, saxophonist Austin Stone, and drummer Brady Sherrill, to draw from different periods of its storied history to fashion a unique and fascinating look into the roots and foundations of progressive rock.

Chattanooga Girls Rock Stars

Noon Tunes

Chattanooga Girls Rock was born out of a sincere belief in the transformational effect of a music education (tailored to a wide variety of learning styles, musical interests, and abilities), a commitment to fostering a more diverse and uplifting music scene in Chattanooga, and a desire to provide girls with positive adult mentors and a supportive community where they can feel free to be exactly who they are.

CGR Stars are a band comprised of female volunteers, instructors, and adults involved with the Chattanooga Girls Rock Organization whose mission is to empower young women through music. Everyone at CGR looks forward to a world in which girls are encouraged to pursue their interests without the notion that some dreams are out of their reach, where support and teamwork replace competition and acrimony, and girls and women are never afraid to rock with abandon!
